A gentle man with a kind smile to brighten the darkest day will sorely be missed by all who merely said "Hello" and shook his hand, or walked the path of life at his side. Never one to complain, no matter what pain he held inside, Floyd set an example in life for us all to follow. Though he no longer walks among us, his presence is with us still; in the memories, the deeds, and the friendships he left behind.
